Organization Name: City of Issaquah
Organization Location: Issaquah, WA
Type: Calls & Submissions
The City of Issaquah invites professional artists/artist teams to submit their qualifications for consideration to design and implement a large-scale mural artwork for a bike and pedestrian tunnel located on the East Lake Sammamish Trail, near SE 62nd Street. The selected artist/artist team will work with the City of Issaquah Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department and the Arts Commission through the artwork development and installation process.
The mural artwork will be located within the bike and pedestrian tunnel along East Lake Sammamish Trail, near SE 62nd Street. In early 2019, the City of Issaquah completed a major road project that extended SE 62nd Street between 221st Place and Lake Drive, adding two roundabouts, as well as upgrades along the East Lake Sammamish Trail and enhancements to the North Fork of Issaquah Creek. The bike and pedestrian tunnel is located within this larger project area.
The tunnel is approximately 128 feet long and 11 feet high. Ideally, mural artwork will cover a significant percentage of the tunnel’s interior wall space.
Compensation: $30,000 (inclusive of all artist fees, design, materials, labor, installation, permits, insurance and travel).
